METHODOLOGY:

  • Each trainee will be issued with a comprehensive folder of course notes, covering the scope of the course. The use of overhead projectors and power point presentations are employed throughout.
  • Trainees are encouraged to ask questions and to take an active part in class discussions.
     
  • 100 hours are dedicated to theoretical studies and approximately 125 hours in well-equipped dedicated workshops.
     
  • Each trainee will be issued with hand tools and power tool required to do all practical tasks.
     
  • The instructor demonstrates how to do the task to small groups, the number depending on how difficult the task is. One to one tuition is often provided.
